Is Acupuncture Right for My Child?

Most parents want to know how pediatric acupuncture will be performed on their child. Called Shonishin, the practice is not painful or scary and is an effective tool for strengthening and maintaining the vitality and health of a child. Often, non-insertive methods are used, including light touch diagnosis and techniques such as tapping, pressing or rhythmic stroking in simple treatment patterns.

Eastern medicine puts emphasis on treating the digestive system with pediatric acupuncture. According to Chinese Medicine, unnecessary use of antibiotics can easily overwhelm a child’s digestive system, killing good bacteria needed for strong digestive and healthy immune systems. Acupuncture may reverse these harmful effects and prevent the need for future antibiotic use.

As more pharmaceuticals are linked to harmful side effects, acupuncture is a safe, nontoxic option for preventing and treating children’s ailments. With some acupuncture treatments, modifications can even be taught to parents for supplemental home therapy.
